  • Early Voting for Iowa's Primary Now Underway

This election is more hard for poll workers because they have to divide up ballots between the parties, and there were also write-ins and 17-year-olds.

Putra Jaya: The Election Commission (EC) has urged the people to be patient and insists that there are no "tricks up their sleeves" in the vote counting process.

"You don't get elected from the primary, you get nominated from the primary", said Wapello County Deputy Auditor Danielle Weller.

Incumbent Auditor Charlie Janssen is the only Republican on the ballot for that office, while Jane Skinner is the only one who will appear for the Democrats.

Voters in Boone, Marion, Newton and Searcy counties will also vote in the Court of Appeals Associate Judge District 02, Position 01 race between Court of Appeals Judge Bart Virden and Johnnie Copeland. Ballots must be returned by mail or in person to the clerk's office by 7 p.m. Tuesday to be counted.

For those residents who have been voting all their lives, there is a change this year.

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is projected to win the West Virginia GOP Senate primary, according to NBC News. The response is either in the form of a voter identification card listing the voter's precinct number and polling place location, or a letter that explains the reason or reasons the application for voter registration was not approved.

"The rakyat are waiting and we understand, give us some time to give an official result when everything is confirmed", its Chairman Tan Sri Mohd Hashim Abdullah said at a press conference chaired by top EC officials on Thursday.

Sumter County Democrats will see primaries for governor (Marguerite Willis, James Smith and Phil Noble), South Carolina Congressional 5th District in the U.S. House (Archie Parnell, Steve Lough, Mark Ali and Sidney Moore), District 64 in the state House (Robert Ridgeway, incumbent, and Mitch Ellerby) and District 6 on Sumter County Council (Jim McCain, incumbent, and Charlie Jones).

"Those are the offices", said Weller.

Occasionally, there may be an office where no one is running.

The absentee-voting period opened on April 24, a day after the deadline passed for registering to vote in time for the primary, Johnson said. Early voting remained brisk with an average of 184 votes cast per day.

Editorial note: An addition was made to reinforce that in absentee voting, the voter identification is required on the original request for a ballot, not on the ballot itself.
